No, he likes The Who, so he is automatically an authority on all things rock. You know, like The Eagles.

I would never, ever put an Eagles recording on deliberately.

However, when Hotel California comes on the radio......guess who's listening? ME!

(I even turn that shit up when it gets to those harmonized solos at the end!!)


+ 1. It kicks 'Freebird's' ass all over town.


Only if the town you live in is Pussyville.


Go on Brett, post that picture of you and Gary Rossington doing the 'Grand Dragon' so we can laugh at you.

Brett Eugene Ralph wrote:"Jet Airliner," "Rock 'n' Me," and "Take the Money and Run" (maybe even "Jungle Love") are pleasantly workmanlike radio ups. This cannot be said of anything The Eagles ever did. Besides, I'll take an amiable pot-smoking goofball over insanely wealthy coked-out misogynists any day.

I'm not in the business of defending Steve Miller, but he doesn't deserve to be lumped in with The Eagles. Nobody does--except maybe Billy Joel.


"Rockin' Me" drives me nuts, mostly because of the song's failure to actually rock. "Jungle Love," though, that one I can tolerate.

And you're right--Billy Joel is worse than Steve Miller. Now that I think about it, Billy Joel may even be worse than the Eagles, because even in the Eagles' most cocaine-fueled moments they never attempted to write a symphony or allowed their model girlfriends to illustrate their album covers.

No, but they dressed up like wittle cowboys.

Face it man, you're comparing dog poop to people poop.

I'll give Billy Joel one thing, he can play the crap out of the piano.
OK, two things - his drummer, Liberty DiVito, was really, really good.

Postby trilonaut on Tue Mar 06, 2007 10:04 am

judging by these pieces of evidence (the only songs i can remember):

eagles - take it easy, hotel california (nearly typed californica)
steve miller band - jungle love, fly like an eagle, big ol jet airliner

steve miller band is worse than the eagles. the eagles are crap but steve miller band is crap of BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.

also, i agree that the joe walsh song at the end of "the warriors" is, at least in context, rad. out of context it's probably stupid and i'm not going to find out.

Steve Miller is terrible. He takes giant Brenda Vaccaro breaths between each line of the song. Sucks, literally.

Though I had been warned about this ahead of time, it was still remarkable to travel extensively in the Muslim world (as I did last yr) and discover how incredibly popular this song, Hotel California, still is over there.

There is something about the melody of that song, or something, that resonates. Because people fucking love it.

I told a guy in Cairo that I lived in California, and the first thing he said was, "I hear that the Hotel California is 'such a lovely place' to go." Then he laughed and shook my hand as a true brother.

While in Egypt, Turkey, and Morocco, I heard 3 or 4 distinct performances of this song, either on the radio or by street performers. I'm pretty sure that, besides covering the song itself, the Hotel California melody and chord progression has been appropriated by musicians over there pretty frequently, and used for new 'original' songs.

Alan B. told me that, when he and his brother were spending time busking out there in the late 80's, they got so many requests for Hotel California that they ended up throwing together a version of it and playing it for people.

Probably an improvement on the original.

There was never a revolutionary southern-bred triad of rulebreaking, cocky-assed Von Erich-beating pro wrestlers who named themselves the "Hotel Californians."

In fact, i believe that the Fabulous Freebirds would have stomped approximately 36 new mudholes in a pansy-assed tag team called the "Hotel Californians," stomped them dry, taken their titles (if they had lucked into any), and taken their fake-n-bake California girlfriends back to Texas for some down-home Southern redneck lovin'.

Salut, Freebirds!

You wear a Cow-Boy Hat, like Bob Fucking Seger so much that you've written several paragraphs about how great he is and you're giving me shit about liking a few The Eagles tunes?

That is precisely what I'm doing: wearing a cowboy hat, loving Bob Seger, and giving you shit for liking The Eagles.

Any more questions?
